Preface
The Dove, in its gentle essence silently stares toward the setting Sun, its flight no longer erratic; the Eagle’s work having been done, its fierce talons unfold in elegant grace as it soars away from the gentle Dove into the Western horizon; the Phoenix falls into the clutches of the Lion and is rendered asunder; then rising and embodying the elements of all, lifts its trident forces into the heavens...

Through the eons the arduous struggle for development of consciousness may well be considered the highest cultural achievement, as well as the most commendable human accomplishment and utmost ascent. In order to perceive this truth, one must first realize that all mankind has to some degree fallen, or has been separated from Absolute Consciousness. Throughout the ages, a myriad of thinking minds have given birth to, developed, and propagandized systems by which man may best achieve or regain the ascent to higher consciousness, or find the Absolute Truth. Although many religious systems have attempted to show man "The Way", this path is best found through the fervent and directed will of the individual. When one becomes so disenchanted with the illusions of the world, or for some other reason it becomes necessary to devote particular attention to the personal psyche, they turn inward in great despair and the soul cries in despondent agony, "Who am I? What am I? Where did I come from?". It is at that moment when the personal rise to consciousness has been acknowledged and thereby fertilized. Just what is Consciousness? It can be duly defined as the ultimate, final Reality, or Absolute Truth. In and of itSelf, it performs no function, but is a presence - everywhere. It does not change or vary and while there are many degrees of being conscious, there are no levels or division of it. It is the beginning without end and just IS. Consciousness is described in many ways, but by far the most adequately appropriate is through the analogy of light.

The greatest personal and collective aspiration of mankind is by far the rise to consciousness.

It is through light that mankind perceives both inner and outer sight. This light must be kindled in its true dwelling place - the SELF. The noted Swiss psychologist, Dr. C.G. Jung says that "the beginning, where everything is still one, and which therefore appears as the highest goal, lies at the bottom of the sea, in the darkness of the unconscious". Darkness gives birth to light.

Human nature and consciousness are best expressed in terms of light. Thus, the darkness (unconsciousness) gives birth to the light (consciousness). The despondent soul, upon realizing that it does not walk in harmony with the dualistic, questioning nature of itSELF, blatantly recognizes the challenges of this world of endless contrast.

The soul then desperately seeks knowledge. It is through this knowledge that a person endeavors to find and unify truth. This quest bludgeons one down paths of trial and error until there is at long last nowhere to turn and no knowledge nor earthly formula is sustaining. Out of this darkness a small flicker begins to grow. Through the light of the intellect, a person forsakes all that they are and all that they know to learn that they know nothing about who they really are or from whence they came. At this ground zero point, the person is open to a new attitude, according to Jung, that accepts the "irrational and incomprehensible simply because it is happening." At this point, the shift in consciousness is fertilized, and the flame of the soul is sparked to a higher level. The sleeping dragon awakens. Humans are many faced, multidimensional beings whose outer flesh houses the inner substance. In the world of physics this would best be explained as the vacuum contained within matter. The flesh, in dense frequency tends to confine and trap the inner body until it is realized that there is a dualistic contrast - a struggle occurring between the inner and outer nature. The inner bodies are the electrical and magnetic matter (the light body) connecting the flesh body with the breathform. These inner bodies transfer impressions from the flesh body to the breathform via the nerves. When one is able to reconcile and balance these inner bodies with the outer, they have advanced toward understanding their true nature. The Hui Ming Ching states: If thou wouldst complete the diamond body with no outflowing, Diligently heat the roots of consciousness and life. Kindle light in the blessed country ever close at hand, And there hidden, let thy true self always dwell. In other words, the human form consists of the flesh and the soul and upon their alchemical reunion, the wholeness of SELF is found. The infamous physician and alchemical philosopher, Philippus Aureolus Threophrastus Bombastus von Hohenheim, known as Paracelsus, stated that man is "one part temporal, the other part eternal, and each part takes its light from God and that there is nothing that does not have its origin in God." Therefore, as he plainly states in the astrum, "in man who is made the image of God, can be found both the cause and the medicine". Contained within human nature is both light (consciousness) and darkness (unconsciousness). In an ancient Arabic treatise attributed to Hermes, Mercurius states, "I beget the light, but the darkness too is of my nature. Nothing better or more worthy can come to pass in the world than the union of myself with my Son." Mercurius exists of all conceivable opposites but is unified.

According to the Hui Ching Ming, "human nature" (hsing) and "consciousness" are used interchangeably. The union of opposites on a high level of consciousness, per Dr. Jung, is not a rational thing, nor it is a matter of will, but instead a

process of psychic development that expresses itSELF in symbols. Both human nature and consciousness are expressed in light symbolism. Many religious practices teach that to achieve salvation, one must overcome the deadly, sinful nature of flesh. However, consider that the fleshly body is a temple and serves as a bridge between heaven and earth. The flesh is a conduit through which the divine may experience and make itSELF manifest within the various dimensions or realms of existence. When understood in it’s natural context, the flesh can be regenerated and brought to a peak of perfection as a temple for the complete multidimensional SELF. The earthly human bears within a spiritual light being. To

subdue the flesh and engage in a life of mystical meditation is profound and even quite desirable for the pleasures and rewards of the mind and soul that it offers. However, unless we are first able to balance and integrate the multidimensional bodies, we cannot hope to climb the upward spiral toward higher consciousness. At this point in time the rise to consciousness for many is coming with the speed of light and we cannot hope to assimilate it unless we have cleared the paths through the physical body in order to let it freely flow. This is the climax of the human experience. This is best exemplified by the writings of Paracelsus in his treatise on astronomy wherein he stated:

"The wise man is the man who lives by divine wisdom and is an image of Him in whose likeness he was created. The wise man rules over both bodies – the sidereal or aerial, and the elemental or material, body. Man must serve both, he must go the ways of each, in order to fulfill the law of the Lord and live in harmony with nature, and with the will of God and with the divine spirit. He must not prefer the mortal body and its reason to the eternal "image", nor must he reject this "image" for the sake of the animal body and find eternal salvation in the wisdom of the animal body... The wise man lives after the image of god and is not guided by the ways of the world. And he who imitates God will conquer the stars."

In addition to Jung, mystics, alchemists, prophets, seers, visionaries, and many others, attest to light as being the substance and conduit of the inner worlds and the channel through which we are enabled to see the things of the soul as it shines through the dense materials of the flesh to enlighten us. The head is the seat of consciousness and a study of the energy flows in the body will reveal that the crown chakra is the focal point of one’s contact with the individual higher SELF - the gateway to one’s bridge with the divine. It is through the visions of light, dreams, opus medulla, etc. that one’s personal myth builds in a manner which is conducive to their individual rise to consciousness and they begin to come into contact with their interdimensional being. One must learn to translate their myth and not build their life around it, but instead learn what it means to their personal goal of union with the divine.

The path to enlightened consciousness is difficult to define and its goal even more difficult to achieve. It is not to be mapped out and planned by the ingenuity of the human mind. To do so would forfeit the goal and bring either limited success (egomania), or immediate failure. However, it is a natural process of human spiritual evolution - which defines itSELF and occurs with or without our conscious participation. The sheer force of will properly submitted to the evolutionary process results in the desired goal being achieved with less human harshness. In a sense, what we struggle to become we are already. The human experience is described uniquely by the notion that perhaps souls are divine sparks from the one true source seeking experience in creation before the long journey home (not necessarily a place). Through the corridors of time we are multidimensional, divine beings having the human experience, not humans trying to have a multidimensional, divine experience. Humans are the bridge between heaven and earth and consciousness is the factor that links the two.

Our universe is one of sharp contrast and duality. This very opposition can be seen as a quite necessary catalyst to higher consciousness. Scientific evidence will support that all things have positive and negative polarity and that for every action that is an equal and opposite reaction. This very contrast is what serves to teach humans a higher order through the Law of Balance - the union of opposites energized into a seemingly inert state that contains within itSELF the multifaceted energies of the quantum life force. The Law of Balance is extremely important to understanding consciousness. The grasp of this concept becomes even more critical when imparting on the journey to higher consciousness because the goal cannot be accomplished without uniting the opposites. Upon studying the living religions of the modern world, one can conclude that the greatest adepts of each religious system focused primary importance on the same major dogma - the universal law of cause and effect. This is in direct conjunction to the scientific theory of action versus reaction. This law brings balance and assists man in finding himself in the universal vast channels of contrast and duality. Mohammed stated: "Let none of you treat his brother in a way he himself would dislike being treated." Jesus commanded: "All things whatsoever ye would that men do unto you, do even unto them." Buddha contended: "In dealing with others, one should do as he would have done him." The most important doctrine of all religions seems to be balance of cause and effect, which leads to self discovery and the eventual ascension beyond the need for balance into unity. If cause and effect cannot be balanced in the physical, third dimensional consciousness, they cannot be united as similar opposites, or balanced mirror images in the dimensions beyond time and space.

Balance can be applied not only to one's religion, but to consciousness as a direct parallel. When coming to terms with the polarization of the conscious and the unconscious mind, it is of critical importance to maintain balance within daily life functions. You must be able to live successfully in the material world of limitation, as well as maintain direct contact with the archetypal dimensions. It is the balancing, assimilation, and integration of the two that thrusts one toward enlightenment and the integration of the multidimensional SELF (the embodiment of all levels including the personal angel).

There are many detours along the craggy path to enlightenment with ancient evils lurking and danger beckoning the undisciplined mind. This is the human plight. Many religious systems have attempted to draw the roadmap pointing disciples toward enlightened consciousness. Systems such as Christianity, Islam, Freemasonry, Yoga, Alchemy, and a myriad of others too many to mention, as well as participation in both drugs and the occult, can lead to expanded consciousness. It would seem that the greatest dilemma lies not in whether to achieve consciousness, which again is a natural human evolutionary process, but in how best to achieve it in a conscious manner! Although a specific developmental system may bring awareness and enlightenment to an individual, possibly even claiming to be the one true source, the truth of the matter is that your soul is the true source and your path is best mapped according to your soul’s guidance, or personal gnosis.

Attempts to achieve higher consciousness through the use of drugs and hallucinogens are mind expanding and according to the experience of some, does open inner doors. However, in order to sustain your rise to consciousness, your emotional,

spiritual, and physical being must bear clear channels for the embodiment of such enlightenment. Pseudo, or shortcut attempts to reach illuminated levels through the use of hallucinogenic drugs may find the person not spiritually and physiologically grounded enough to understand and absorb all that is seen, felt, and heard in other dimensions, and leaves the inner and outer bodies teetering out of balance. Many asylums are filled with saddened souls who have channeled in various directions either with or without external agents and simply cannot find the way home. There are also many individuals who have spontaneous mystical and profound experiences and never understand why they cannot willfully go there again. The determining key is a balance of the multidimensional bodies.

The balance of the multidimensional bodies is such a delicate process that there is little wonder there are so few adepts. The human experience allows us to become experts at this process. Multidimensional balance involves more than tuning up the outer body, but the inner light body must be attuned as well. As the ancient Hebrews and Egyptians well knew, we must feed both the inner and outer bodies properly, for without a strong inner light body, the physical body would soon become out of tune and perish, which occurs in old age and physical death. The more out of tune the physical body becomes, the more consciousness is reduced. All the tools necessary to nourish these bodies are available within the various dimensions. It is the task of the seeker to integrate these tools and make them work in a specific manner to their unique need. For this task there are no true external physicians; no modern doctors who can cure or build the inner light body. This task of the rise to consciousness and enlightenment requires personal commitment. Upon that commitment to SELF, it is then that all necessary sources become as tools.

Unlike the medical physician who is concerned purely with matters of the flesh, the in-depth psychologist is concerned not only with substantiating the complexities of the mind, but also with psychic experience. It has been authenticated that psychic contents are experienced and that their autonomy is without question. Jung stated that "there are fragmentary psychic systems that appear spontaneously in ecstatic states" resulting in enlightened consciousness. Or, according to Jung, if the person is spiritually unconditioned these pressures end in mental disturbances "fixed in delusions and hallucinations which destroy the unity of the mind".121 So, without criticism, it would appear that the safest method of development is in keeping the channels as clear as possible and with having some sort of personal religion or belief system on which to rely, even if the beliefs change during the course of development - and change they will of their own accord.

Jung went further to explain that the vision of light is an experience common to many mystics and one that is of the greatest significance because it proves to be something unconditioned and absolute. according to Jung is merely the center of consciousness). The goal then transcends the normal need for balance in our polarized world of contrast and duality. then the personality is no longer centered on EGO (which. as when contrasts clash in an attempt to overpower each other.

He concludes that when a god is not acknowledged. Man’s longing for redemption is universal and only has selfish motives in rare cases. Thus.

A person should balance creating inertia between the two and await the time that the need for balance will be transcended and the soul can ascend the higher dimensions of pure consciousness.

This truth can be related to the duality of the conscious and unconscious mind and the efforts of one to control the other. this goal should be identifying the SELF that is focused on the center of light (consciousness) and darkness (unconsciousness). or hands-on guidance systems (including religions and philosophical theory) that contain fool proof methods on developing higher awareness of consciousness. as did Jesus Christ. or for every measure of light there is an equal and opposing measure of darkness. file:///D|/Occultism.%20Alchemy. or else the knowledge achieved can create egomania (perhaps even an antichrist?). it has not been possible for everyone to develop fully into the light of consciousness.
